DMI-65 is a state-of-the-art infusion technology used to produce a catalytic filtration solution that removes iron and manganese from water supplies.

The system does not require potassium permanganate so there is minimal chemical leaching into water streams.

Water filtration system for commercial and industrial applications

Produced by Quantum Filtration, the micro-porous configuration of DMI-65 efficiently eliminates dissolved iron and manganese to 0.001 parts per million (ppm). With a five to ten-year life span, the solution has been used extensively in a wide variety of applications for more than 30 years.

Features of DMI-65 include:

Quantum Filtration’s DMI-65 uses infusion technology to create a catalytic water filtration system suitable for various industries.
The DMI-65 solution is suitable for multiple water treatment applications.
The system is ideal for the mining sector, where filtered water can be utilised by miners and for site equipment.
Implementing filtered water minimises staining and downtime, while optimising system performance.
  • Wide pH range: between pH5.8 and pH8.6
  • High-flow rates: DMI-65 is operational in temperatures up to 113°F (45°C)
  • System compatibility
  • Arsenic removal

Purified water applications in the mining sector

Water management is becoming a key sustainability issue within the energy and mining resource industries.

Miners often work in dry and remote areas, where environmental issues make water sourcing, use and disposal especially problematic. Water is used throughout the mining process in various applications such as cooling equipment, drinking water production, separating waste and dust control.

Water management applications in the mining sector include drinking, recycled water and process water treatment systems, product recovery, residual management and other treatment technologies.

Mining companies develop water management plans to reduce contamination levels and prevent the discharge of polluted water into the environment. The surrounding surface and groundwater quality is also monitored, while treatment processes ensure mine water meets regulatory standards before being disposed of.

The benefits of using filtered water in the mining industry include:

  • Stain reduction
  • Minimal downtime
  • Cost-effective cleaning and replacement operations
  • Improved system performance
  • A high-disinfection rate
  • Significant return-on-investment
  • Decreased potassium permanganate levels

Environmental benefits of using filtered water

The DMI-65 is an environmentally friendly, silica sand-based, catalytic action water filtration system.

Using the DMI-65 based filtration system in the water management strategy has various benefits such as reduced iron and manganese levels in drinking water to below health authority standards, impurity removal to control deposition, carryover and corrosion in boiler systems, as well as the prevention of clogged water feed systems.

DMI-65 has been tested and certified by the Australian Water Quality Association in accordance with NSF/ANSI 61 and for use in England and Wales under Regulation 31 (4a) of the water supply (water quality) regulations 2010 Sl No.994 (W.99).

Pre-treatment for Boilers and Cooling Tower Water
